Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G45 Z77 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard

Case: NZXT Source 210 Black Gaming Chassis 120mm Fan

PSU: OCZ ZS Series 650W 80+ Bronze PSU with 135mm Fan & single +12V Rail

GPU: Sapphire 11200-14-20G OC Sapphire Card (2GB, HD7850, GDDR5)

Memory: G.Skill 8GB DDR3 1333 MHz Ripjaws Memory Type: 240-pin DIMM

CPU: i5 3570k 3.4 Ivy socket

I am wondering, will these components all fit together? will the Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 gpu work with the MSI Z77A-G45 mobo? I've heard it doesn't in some cases,.

plus I will be using my Current Dell Dimension e521 Sata2 Drive and it's optical drive inside this rig since I'm a bit strapped for cash at the moment, will these work too?
